BACKGROUND The Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease (HFMD) is the most common infectious disease in China, its total incidence being around 500,000~1,000,000 cases per year. The composite space-time disease variation is the result of underlining attribute mechanisms that could provide clues about the physiologic and demographic determinants of disease transmission and(More)
BACKGROUND Population health attributes (such as disease incidence and prevalence) are often estimated using sentinel hospital records, which are subject to multiple sources of uncertainty. When applied to these health attributes, commonly used biased estimation techniques can lead to false conclusions and ineffective disease intervention and control.(More)
Lumbrokinase (LK) is an important fibrinolytic enzyme derived from earthworm. The capsules of the extracts of LK have been widely used. Unfortunately, the life cycle of earthworm is long, and extraction of lumbrokinases is generally a labor intensive and time-consuming activity. Also the extract is easily contaminated by multiple components. The successful(More)
The crystal structure of the title compound, C11H13N3O2S2, has been determined previously on the basis of refinement against laboratory powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) data, supported by comparison of measured and calculated (13)C solid-state NMR spectra [Hangan et al. (2010). Acta Cryst. B66, 615-621]. The molecule is tautomeric, and was reported as an(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of using short tandem repeats (STRs) to diagnose Edwards’ syndrome (ES). Quantitative fluorescence polymerase chain reaction (QF-PCR) was performed to amplify STR loci on chromosome 18, specifically D18S53, D18S59, and D18S488. The amplified products were subjected to a fluorescence signal analysis(More)
Kip-related proteins (KRPs) play a central role in the regulation of the cell cycle and differentiation through the modulation of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) in plants. Until now, little has been done to explore the relationship between drought stress and the expression of KRP genes and we will investigate this link. Drought stress was imposed on 15(More)
Square-wave (SW) switching of the lasing direction in a semiconductor ring laser (SRL) is investigated using counter-directional mutual feedback. The SRL is electrically biased to a regime that supports lasing in either counter-clockwise (CCW) or clockwise (CW) direction. The CCW and CW modes are then counter-directionally coupled by optical feedback, where(More)
